ACCEPTANCE DEPOSIT: A payment of $250 is required of all applicants at the time they accept admission to the College. This deposit is non-refundable if the applicant later decides not to enroll at the College during the year for which he/she was accepted.

SELECTING A MAJOR: Grove City College recommends that all applicants declare a major since this is one of the many methods the College chooses to shape the freshman class. There are limited openings for each of the majors offered at the College, and each applicant may be considered for only one major. Many students, however, switch majors throughout their studies.

UNDECLARED APPLICANTS: Students who are undecided about choosing a major may select either "Undeclared - Liberal Arts" or "Undeclared - Science and Engineering" and must choose a major by the end of their sophomore year. After enrolling at the College, a student may change his/her originally declared major pending department approval.

TRANSFER CREDIT REQUESTS: Grove City College respects and understands that many students will take college courses prior to matriculation to an undergraduate school. The necessary details to submit transfer credit requests are available HERE.
